group notifications

I often use the notifications in the notification area for event reminders.
I would like to have the option to group the notfications so that only the number and one symbol is shown in the notification area.
When having several reminders, this helps keeping the notification area not too crowded. The Astrid App has a similar approach for task notifications.

    A few minutes ago version 1.0.81 has been released. It contains something like these “group notifications”: If you turn “Settings”, “Reminders”, “Show pop-up window” and “Display multiple events in pop-up window” on you can set “Display pop-up” to “After selecting status bar notification”. Then a single status bar notification will show how many reminders are due and by tapping it you will get a pop-up window that displays these reminders. Please write in the comments here if something doesn’t work correctly or should be changed. Thank you very much!

        number of reminders in notification symbol would really be great!

      • Micha Meyer commented  · 

        Allday event reminders work reliable now!

        So still voting for number of grouped notifications in notification bar symbol.

        I would also vote for number of grouped notifications in notification bar symbol.
        Plus making allday event reminders work reliable...:-)

        Grouping is really nice!
        Full support for number of grouped notifications in notification bar symbol.

        Grouped notifications are fine.
        An additional feature would be to show the number of grouped notifications in the symbol of the notification bar (as email app do it)

        The grouped notifications are great and work well.
        The only problem is with several allday events (birthdays etc.): Only the first allday notification is shown.

        This would be a really nice enhancement to this great product!

        K-9 Mail also has something similar.

        This is a good idea for the crowded notification area!
